Hello,

I found very interesting configuration for load-balancing (ACE) smtp communication (Ironport ESA):

http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Iron_Port_Email_Security_Appliances_and_ACE_Module_Configuration_Example


I have one question: why is there used sticky? SMTP communication is done only by one tcp session, therefore I think there is no need any sticky.


can anybody explain me reason for sticky in this configuration example?
